Of all the tricks designers use to maximize space, the strategic use of lighting and mirrors ranks among the most popular and for a good reason. Mirrored sideboards, console tables, and cabinets are an example of this unique approach - keeping clutter under control and amplifying existing light at the same time. Glazed finish, golden accents, lattice patterns, beaded trimming and beveled mirrors are just some of the exquisite additions to mirrored furniture, taking that principle to its ultimate manifestation - building light upon light.
